This Ha’ Penny Snacks recipe is preserved from and listed in the Home Cooking community recipe book printed by the Dana, Indiana 49’er Club in 1974. Submitted by Betty (Farrington) Webb.
I’ve found it listed several ways during my research: Ha’Penny Snacks, Ha’Pennies, and Cheese Pennies.

- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- Mix butter and cheese
- Add flour, soup mix, then bacon - and blend
